  1. So grateful for your blog Dr. Ruscio and all the time you pour into it in an effort to help others. It has helped me so much! That is such encouraging research surrounding berberine. I have been taking berberine as a low dose antimicrobial and love the way it also seems to help balance my blood sugar. I have been reading a lot this week about all the other added benefits of berberine (lifts depression by increasing serotonin, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer) etc.

  3. Dr. Ruscio, I have consulted you long time ago, but we were unable to find any helpful therapy. It seems that I finally found the answer to my health issues. I’m assumimg that you’re probably seeing quite a lot of people like me with MCAS (mast cell activation syndrome), possibly without even recognizing that, and I strongly believe this disease deserves so much more attention in functional medicine circles, because of its heterogeineity and mysterious presentations which can mimic a lot of conditiona. I thought maybe you could invite Dr. Lawrence Afrin on your podcast to talk about that to bring more awareness.

    1. Hi Simas,
      Yes, I remember your case well. I would be very open to this as histamine intolerance and in some cases MCAD to come up and I agree that they deserve more attention. Do you have his contact information?
      Glad to hear your doing better!

      1. I do, he is currently in Uni of Minnesota as far as I’m aware, but I believe he is transitioning to some kind of specialized center for mast cell disorders. He has an amazing book called “Never bet against occam” which you can find on Amazon and I highly recommend it. You can contact him at afrinl [at] umn.edu , he is usually very responsive.
        Cheers.
